Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for This Product (for Japan)
This mobile phone 【S5-SH】 meets the Japanese technical regulations* and international guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
The Japanese technical regulations for exposure to radio frequency energy established permitted levels of radio frequency energy, based on standards developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies.
The regulation employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit is 2 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of tissue.
The limit includes a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The value of the limit is equal to the value given in international guidelines recommended by ICNIRP**, which is in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO).
The highest SAR value for this mobile phone is 1.444 W/kg*** when tested for use at the ear, and 0.369 W/kg*** when worn on the body in the below manner****.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, all phones meet the Japanese technical regulations.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR of the phone during operation can be well below the maximum value.
Use at positions other than at the ear****
This mobile phone may be used at positions other than at the ear. By using an accessory such as a belt clip holster that maintains a 1.5 cm separation with no metal (parts) between the body and the mobile phone, this mobile phone will comply with international guidelines for radio wave protection.
* The technical regulation is provided in Article 14-2 of the Ministry Ordinance Regulating Radio Equipment.
** International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
*** The value is under simultaneous transmission use conditions.
The World Health Organization has announced that "A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use. "

European RF Exposure Information/FCC RF Exposure Information
This mobile phone 【S5-SH】 is confirmed to comply with guidelines relating to effects of radio wave exposure as set forth by the Council of Europe (CE) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Refer to the following.
■European RF Exposure Information
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health. The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device when tested at the ear is 1.13 W/kg*. As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in other positions, such as on the body. In this case, the highest tested SAR value is 0.76 W/kg* at the separation distance of 0.5 cm from the body. For electronic safety, maintain the separation distance with accessories containing no metal, that position handset a minimum of the above distance. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines.
* The tests are carried out in accordance with international guidelines for testing.
Simplified Declaration of Conformity for 【S5-SH】
Hereby, SHARP CORPORATION declares that the radio equipment type 【S5-SH】 is in compliance with Directive 2014/53/EU. The full text of the EU declaration of conformity is available at the following internet address:http://www.sharp.co.jp/k-tai/.
■FCC RF Exposure Information
Your handset is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organization through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless handsets employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR value for this model handset as reported to the FCC when tested for use at the ear is 1.14 W/kg, and when worn on the body in a holder or carry case, is 0.45 W/kg.
Body-worn Operation; This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the handset kept 1.0 cm from the body. To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure requirements, use accessories that maintain a 1.0 cm separation distance between the user's body and the handset. The use of beltclips, holsters and similar accessories should not contain metallic components in its assembly.
The use of accessories that do not satisfy these requirements may not comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, and should be avoided. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model handset with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR information on this model handset is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/ after searching on FCC ID APYHRO00267.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the FCC website at https://www.fcc.gov/general/radio-frequency-safety-0.
FCC ID Location
The device is electronically labeled and the FCC ID can be displayed from Home Screen as follows: Drag the Favorites tray to the top of the Display(Settings)SystemAbout phoneRegulatory labels.
The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They note that if you want to reduce your exposure then you can do so by limiting the length of calls or using a handsfree device to keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
